That's not an unusual discount on a model-year closeout. I've seen advertised specials of ~$5000 off of Sonata GLSes each of the past two years, for year-end closeouts, and the GLS costs a lot less than the Hybrid. And I've seen comparable specials on other low-trim mid-sizers such as the Camry and Altima, so it's not just Hyundai offering the great deals for year-end.

I understand fully the model year close out discounts etc. but this one stood out as I'm not used to seeing this kind of discount on a passenger car even at year end. The advertised discounts on the Sonata GLS at the same dealership was $4000. Maybe they just ordered way too many of the hybrids and when Honda's new Hybrid hit the streets with their 50mpg advertising it might have slowed the Sonata Hybrid sale.
Anyway, sounds like a pretty darn good deal for somebody if they're in the market for one. The biggest discounts in Chicago Sunday paper for the Camry was about $4000k. The $7500 off the hybrid Hyundai stood out like a sore thumb
It wasn't a slam of any kind against Hyundai by the way. Just curious.

How about this Ad ?

Yeah, maybe the new competition from the HAH is a factor. Maybe the under-$3 a gallon gas is a factor also. I've seen pretty big discounts on Priuses recently too... I never used to see that when gas was $4 a gallon.
But remember... it's only a darn good deal if you really want the car!

Well what car are they selling that has an MSRP of $26,445? If it's the GLS next to that price, then they must have added $4,000 in worthless dealer accesories so they can take $7,750 off. Even their footnote gives a disclaimer regarding their MSRP.

I didn't really look at how the numbers were arrived at, but thanks for reading the fine print. I just looked at the Screamer part of the ad.

I live in the nw burbs and don't get all the ads. I never see McGrath downtown ads. Also, a lot of southside and south suburb dealers advertise only in the Sun-Times. I get the Trib so I was only referencing the ads in my Chicago Tribune. I should have specified I guess.
The ad I was referring to is this one.
And I have to correct myself as I said there was $4000 off a Sonata GLS in the same ad and there was not. It must have been another dealer where I saw the $4000 off a Sonata.
Edit: The ad that I linked to says $6500 off the Hybrid but I just checked my paper and it says $7500 plain as day. If you go to their website and click on the special banners at the top of the page it say $7500 of the Sonata Hybrids as well.
Anyway, a good deal for somebody that need one.

I just typed in Chicago and Hyundai and picked the irish name.
Will be freezing my butt off at the Pinstripe Bowl in a coupe of weeks.
One of my kids wants to be able to post pics from the game.
